talked about today was energy. i'm from an energy state and the energy committee and his actions are different than his words. he continues to block the keystone pipeline which would help us in terms of energy security and bringing more jobs to america, so his words are very different than his actions and we see it again on energy, with his policies. >> so, senator barrasso, thank you so much for being here. congressman labrador, both of you come back. i appreciate it. >> thanks. >> up next, the odds and costs of diving over the cliff with "time" magazine's michael crowley, a.b. stoddard of the hill, karen tumulty of the "washington post" and cnns's jessica yellen. suddenly, she does something unexpected and you see the woman you fell in love with. she's everything to you. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to g
is that senators will devote much more of their energies to governance. in a perfect world, we would not only govern, we would execute a coherent strategy. that's a very high bar for any legislative branch to clear but we must aspire to it in cooperation with the president because we are facing fundamental changes in the world that will deeply affect america's security and standard of living. the list of such changes is long but it starts in asia with the rise of china and india as economic political and military powers. the obama administration has conspicuously announced a pivot to asia. at the center of this pivot is china, which exists as both an adversary to certain u.s. interests and a fellow traveler sharing mutual goals and vulnerabilities on others. the ongoing challenge will be for the united states to discern discern, sometimes issue by issue, whether china is an adversary or a partner. and this calibration will impact america's relations with the rest of asia and may ultimately determine prospects for war or peace in this world. while visiting indonesia thailand and the philippin

. in the case of energy, we will get inexpensive, low co2 energy sources. the problem is that the amount of time it takes to invent, make them economical, deploy those things in a sector that moves very lowly historically -- and there's been great books that go through this -- we have to kind of on door rate an invention. and within the field there are people like me who think we focus too much on deployment of stuff that we have today versus funding basic research that could give us things that don't need to be quite as subsidized when they get out there. so i think there's a scary race going on, and i'm worried that we're not paying attention to it in terms of of do we get the new stuff before the amount of warming hurts the entire globe, but particularly the poorest who are in those aqua tore y'all regions and subject to that. but even there i think the right things can come up with a good solution. >> and what should policy be doing right now to get, to try to help the good side of that race? >> well, i think to the degree that you're flat funded, you should shift money away from tax expendi
need to do is spend our efforts and energy in trying to achieve a plan that will carry us forward. i still am optimistic we can do that. i'm hopeful that we will do it. if we don't do it in the next several weeks before the new year, i hope it is done immediately there after. i think it would be better for the country and economy and people's confidence in the act of this country to make decisions and govern wisely if we were able to make an agreement before the end of the year. and that is still possible despite the u turn from the speaker yesterday. i hope that the discussions continue and prove conclusive. with that i want to thank you for this opportunity and i'll be happy to answer questions people might have. >> we will take questions. the questions will be first from members of the media and national press club members and then if no hands are raised after that we will go to others. >> senator i want to tie some things together in terms of your great, informative powerful knowledge based so speech and ask a question that brings us into focus given current continue verse sis. y
my energy and soul to restore that america, to lift our eyes to a better future. a week later, democrats hosted their convention in charlotte, north carolina. and president obama and vice president biden accepted their nominations for re-election. on september the 11th, gunmen killed the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens and three other americans at the american consulate in benghazi. >> they had a mission. and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. >> u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, used intelligence agency's talking points to tie the violence to worldwide protests over an american made anti-islam film. the attack later linked to terrorism and some on capitol hill accused the administration of covering up the truth. though there is no evidence of that. in the midst of that controversy, president obama and governor mitt romney squared off in three debates while both joe biden and paul ryan came out swinging at their one and only vice presidential debated. israeli president benjamin netanyahu addressed the united nations to renew his calls

the government spends money on. the treasury, defense department, energy department. all of these things here. and right back there on the score board you see the fundamental problem. last year we took in $2.3 trillion in revenue but spent $3.6 trillion. and this whole process has been aimed at dealing with that deficit. because neither party could really come up with a decision on what they were going to agree on on what to cut spending. what they said is if we don't have a deal by january 2nd, sequestration will set in. what is that? that's essentially a 10% cut across the board to everything out here and everyone has to deal with it the best way they can. now, i want to point out something here. there's a big difference in the size of these departments. for example, housing or personnel or energy are really quite small. you can cut them dramatically and not have nearly the impact you would have as if you hit bigger departments. some of these programs are also somewhat protected by law. sop they can't all be hit the same way. and the truth is a lot of people aren't sure what the result will
, expanding clean, renewable energy and protecting our precious natural resources. he will defend our native hawaiians and all of our nation's first people, those americans who exercise sovereignty in lands that later became part of the united states. he will uphold the values and priorities of our unique state. i say to my friend, the new junior senator from hawaii, never forget that you are here with a solemn responsibility to do everything you can to represent the people of hawaii, to make sure that their needs are addressed in every policy discussion, to speak up and seek justice for those who cannot help themselves. god bless you, senator schatz. god bless hawaii. god bless the united states of america. mr. reid: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from nevada. mr. reid: before my friend from hawaii leaves the floor, we have all come and given speeches -- one of us at least -- about you, but we haven't had a lot of people on the floor when we have done that. your presentation right now is typical for dan akaka. never a word about you, always about somebody else. and if the
want to spend the time and energy to do that, then you should stand aside and we should proceed with a simple majority vote and address the issue at hand. so i do think we need to address that silent filibuster, that secret filibuster. the american people deserve to know why it is we're not getting their work done, and if they can see it's being blocked by a group that is flickly making their case, they can either agree with them and say that person is a hero, they are standing up for some core principle and we salute their efforts or we can say they're a bum because all they're trying to do is paralyze the senate, they are not making any valuable point, and that feedback i think will help us resolve some of those filibusters. now, in some cases, folks have said well, isn't that going to eat up even more of the senate's time? and i respond no, it's not because we're just talking about what is now silent and hidden but paralyzing us being done in public where there is actually a dialogue about the issue at hand, the public can participate. it's not the only thing that should be d
nobody has the energy to start from scratch. but do you get the sense from any of the republicans you're speaking to that at least they see this as moving the ball a little bit farther down the field? certainly, you know, they haven't gone ten yards, but do they feel that way a little bit? >> they don't like the fact that there aren't a lot of spending cuts in this legislation. the tax provisions, the republicans aren't thrilled about, most of them, because it does raise taxes by -- for people making more than $400,000 or $450,000 a year. they're not happy with that. a lot of those republicans certainly in the house would go along with it as the democrats are going to go along with it if there were more spending cuts. we'll see. i suspect that we'll see an amendment once it comes up in the house for some significant spending cuts and we'll see where it goes as far as the senate is concerned. that could be the kiss of death, this whole thing could collapse over the next 24, 48 hours. and then they start from scratch on thursday. >> absolutely. an amendment would have to go and an amend
was an engineer with a passion to try a lot of new stuff and i have a lot of energy. i hired people because i could not do myself what i wanted to do, and so i had employees. and i respected the work that they did because i gave them good salaries and the very best dental and health insurance, better than lockheed. and i never thought that i was there to grow a business or to make a profit. in fact, the number one thing -- and i always said that even to those who held stock in my company -- the number one thing, the biggest priority for my employees was to have fun. i enjoyed the accomplishment of breakthroughs and the fun of a first applied. and everyone who worked for me deserved to have that enjoyment. the second priority was the families of the employees have fun. that is why we provided good salaries and good health care and so on. the third priority, no cutting to make a profit. it is tough to say that to a stockholder or a board member. but every company i have ever seen go bankrupt, they started having fun -- they stop having fun before that. when people have fun, they will work like.
politics and legislation. it is not in our genes to put a whole bunch of energy in getting the republican party. we've not learned how to do that yet, i don't think. i like being a democrat for that reason. >> one of the things we hear from long-term members or members who are leaving is the congeniality here has changed. what is your view? >> person-to-person, you know what our elevators are like here. the public probably doesn't but we get squished and it is fun. there's humor and there is a lot of banter and people don't dislike each other, period. but you get off that elevator and it changes. when i first got here, people were -- the thing that surprised me was how polite, how respectful everybody was to everybody no matter what party you were, no matter what the issue was. it was very respectful. so you could carry on real conversations that over the years it has gotten -- it is just not. that's been a huge disappointment. >> our research shows that you are spoken on the floor, given 400-plus speeches. >> almost 450. >> in the house of representatives, why do you use that platform an
